09-10 Premier League Kits: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

In a tribute to the Clint Eastwood movie, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” EPL Talk has categorized the new shirts for the 2009-2010 season into three categories. It wasn’t easy. Many of the ones that we would have placed in a mediocre category, if it was available, had to go into “The Good” or “The Bad.” Most of the ones down the middle of the line went into the latter.

Football clubs have transition years where instead of winning trophies, they end up rebuilding and strengthening their squads and preparing for greater success the following season. This, I believe, is what’s happening to the 2009-2010 season of shirt designs for Premier League clubs. There are a few strong ones, but the majority of designs lack imagination, are bereft of new ideas and are just plain awful.

Here are the results:
